  • i was there last January with my two grandsons. The view was overwhelming as it sits on the top of the hill. It is located between Gunma PRefecture and Nagano Prefecture.  more »
  • Amazed at what was passed off climbing the temple at hand finally arrives, and asks for the nokyo-sho! Under the 0/2013 wrong position put the paper clip 9. Starts to go down stairs and coming priest. Just who is who? Had tea house across the street from the shrine.

  • I like shrines. Drive away from Karuizawa station. I think it is a shrine dedicated to a small shrine, but rare. Without commercial facilities nearby, as a tourist destination is a little sad.

  • The grounds of the shrine by border divided in two in the middle (? ) Also it is very rare in the country is so different than box separate shrine. Further, from the shrine as seen near the lookout, panorama view from here is hidden in the scenic spots. And into the neighborhood only access, private car and using a navigation box, old Karuizawa Ginza area is unusually thin, light motor vehicle non-is tough. Everything is available to and from the famous "red bus" is highly recommended.

  • Nice shrine history on unusual shrines of the border mountain climbing get tired of store parking signs. Nokyo-sho wrote in the absence that day wild side was able to put money into can you quit, had written only the Gunma side. Because if you go to HP bus bus is a good idea.

  • It is great. Steeped in history, or where more than 600 years ago, please like me some power spots are like, so is the sacred tree is more than 850 years old. I was very humid or MOSS is a lot more money and good photos. Way children stood on the border between Nagano and Gunma prefectures, promised "half Nagano-" and I was playing (^ ^)

  • Usui ice gongen shrine is a rare shrine governmental approach of the main central Gunma and Nagano prefectures. You can't get in the vehicle from the Gunma side. Because it goes from Kita-Karuizawa, holiday is pedestrian detour to narrow streets. Kumano shrine address is Gunma prefecture side matsuida-machi touge 1 Kumano shrine Nagano Prefecture side at Royal Grand shrine Kumano shrine, 1 pass town Karuizawa-machi 8 nokyo-SHO of the Yata-Crow submitted. Firstfruits cost 500 yen. You are away of the Imperial Grand shrine Office had also the time
